Decorating My MAC Palette/My Everyday Colors Palette

I'm not normal, lol...I have to "pink" everything ya' know :) I put some heart stickers all over my MAC's I had to spruce it up :) I picked the 15 shades that I use in my all the time/go looks! They are as followed...

Expresso...Waternymph...Eyepopping...Sumptious Olive...Parfait Amour
Electric Eel...Coppering...Casino...Tempting...Post Haste

And Electra...not included.

I love all my other MAC colors, but this palette contains my all time favs!

Emani Minerals

Here is a quick review on Emani Minerals, I found the most beautiful pink pigment! I'm sad that I only picked up one! Boo! Anyway, here is a picture and a swatch...I didn't use any primer so you can see how pigmented it is. I googled their products and found a couple right ups on them. Enjoy :)


I have to have these, enough said....

Face Moment....

I can honestly say I have to do something about my "bags" **GROWLS** I hate having that tired look. Although people think I'm crazy when I say that, I notice them! But just goes to show you not everyone can have a perfect face, right?! This look is simple, simply because I didn't want to spend that much time on my face today. I only used 2 shadows, NYX Cherry and Golden Lemon pigment by MAC. Some BTFL and mascara..WHATTT NO LASHES!! No...I didn't feel like bothering with those today either :)

Perfect Bday Outfit

Browsing Forever 21 I came across this cute little fall dress, caught my eye LIKE THAT! Paired it with some cute little purple pumps...I think I'm going to be happy :)

NHI (Natural Hair Inspiration) Of The Day

I'm inspired once again! the reason why I am continuing my NHJ!! The picture speaks for itself :) The beautiful Jill Scott rocking her beautiful twist outs...

MUFE Sample...

Ladies, if you've been wondering about MakeUp For Evers HD Foundation well you can get a few free samples! I called today and the lady i spoke with was sooo nice :) If you have a Sephora near you can go there as well. I'm in rush mode and i want mines now lol. I have to travel an hour to our nearest Sephora! Can't wait, as soon as I get the samples i will do a review.

Im So Excited :)

My BDAY is coming up this Friday and I've been holding off for a few things, my boyfriend and I will be heading out on the weekend to do some shopping AHHHHHHH!!! LOL...sooo, one place that is a MUST is SEPHORA! I want to try out some new things, I'm a MAC girl at heart but, I have to try new things right?! One of the things I want to pick up is Urban Decay's Book Of Shadows. The colors seem to be off the hook (I hope) it comes with their primer, the infamous Urban Decay Primer Potion, which I have yet to try. Another thing I want is some good ole' NARS blush. I am a sucker for blush, and you can never have to many! I prefer the peachy blushes, and some shades of pretty pinks. Hmmm....what else, oh yeh...BRUSHES! I need new brushes for sure, so FRIDAY I will be out spending by BDAY with my babes and stepson and then SATURDAY its off for some shopping...WOOHOOO BABY!....

Pretty Girls, have a blessed day :)

Hair Recipes...

Here are a few recipes that I have...been wanting to try them for forever SOOOOO what better time than now, right??!

Stop hair brittleness and breakage with soy milk. It nourishes the cuticle to restore strength and flexibilty. Combine one-half cup soy milk and three-tablespoons of cornstarch. Comb through wet hair and let stand ten minutes. Rinse well.

Avocado Egg Conditioner
1/2 of Avocado (depending on hair length more)1 Egg2 Tbsp. Olive OilMix it together and apply throughout hair; place a cap or bag on your head and leave on overnight for best results.Wash out with shampoo and conditioner in the morning and watch the shine in your hair glow. If not overnight, try for about 45-60 min

The Power Of Words...

I woke up this morning and checked my phone...only to find that my Y! Messenger still had me logged in. Well, my bestie had sent a message that just blew me away...literally tears were coming out of my eyes. It was basically a message stating what I meant to her, the things that were in the message were words that I needed to hear from a FRIEND! You see...when u meet people in the world, and become good love them no matter what. You except the good things about them and the bad things. Only a good friend will will help you overcome and or get through those bad areas. Luckily, I have a friend that I know God placed in my life for numerous reasons. Whats even when you can confide in that friend and know that the things you tell her will never leave her mouth. So...cherish your friends and love them...even if your friends make mistakes.. YOU STILL LOVE THEM.... real friends will help you overcome the struggles of your life and the hard areas. Because of my great friend...I am overcoming mine.

My YouTube

There is the link....

I put my first vid up today of like 3 or 4 looks Ive done in the pass, I am going to start doing tutorials soon! Im excited, I've got a lot of favorites so check them out as well!

Oily Skin Solutions...

Yucky...that's what i say when I wipe my tzone! I have combo skin and no matter what I've used over the passed years that oil seems to find its way back during the day. UNTILLLL i hooked up with Biore (lol)... i love their face products! It's not to harsh for MY SKIN and it knocks the oily areas out. The Astringent is the truth :)!

Eyebrow Threading **NEVER AGAIN**

*sighs* i will never let anyone who threads eyebrows touch mines again! She jacked me up..i mean my eyebrows were shape just horrible. And the bad part about it is i already had a natural arch... UGHH!!! It was the most horrible experience, now i have to let them grow out...

Natural Venting...

So im sitting at home with nothing to do right...trying to decide on a proper transitioning method for my hair. See...a couple months ago i decided to go natural (woohooo) and i went 5 LONG MONTHS without a about new growth out this world. So mind started back wondering to the creamy crack and i got a RELAXER :(!! Im even more pissed at myself because i want beautiful kinky hair. I was able to see my curl pattern and everything...TO HELL WITH U RELAXERS. Im off that bandwagon, here goes my journey to beautiful hair :D.

Key things to remember while going natural...

1. Its all about MOISTURE! Know the difference between that and OILS...
2. Products...the less the better
3. Protective Styles...aka Baggie Methods..Twist/Braidouts..Banktu KNots...ect ect
4. Conditioner!! LADIES LADIES LADIES.... i was COWASHING (conditioner washing only) my hair twice a week and my hair was so soft it would slip thru my hands!!
5. Believe you can do it!!
